Tips to stay safe in the Sun!
1. Apply sunscreen generously. If you're using a cream, the amount of sunscreen you should use is about the size of a regular golf-ball, or 1 ounce.
Use more than you think you need. Most people do not use enough sunscreen, stopping at somewhere between one-fourth and one-half the quantity applied to test sunscreens.
Start ahead of time. Ideally, begin applying sunscreen at least a half hour before you go out. It takes approximately 20 minutes for sunscreen to become effective after it has been applied.
2. Stay out of the sun. This is especially important between 10am and 4pm; UV is at its highest around the middle of the day, when the sun is directly overhead.
Make the most of shade. Finding a spot in the shade.
Create your own shade. As well as using a hat, carrying an umbrella or parasol and making use of it to keep off the sun is a very good way of keeping you safe. Cover up.
3. Cover Up
Light layers of clothing work best, in light colours which reflect heat, rather than dark ones, which absorb it. Try a shell or tank top, and then wear a light camp shirt open over that. Natural fibers like cotton are cooles
Wear light-coloured, loose fitting clothing. It will keep you cooler and help prevent sunburn by reflecting the sunlight. Be aware, though, that clothing may not block sunlight completely. In fact, an ordinary t-shirt may only be the equivalent of SPF 5. Look for clothing designed to block sun, even up to SPF 50, if you spend a lot of time outdoors.
4. Stay hydrated. Water is the best choice for keeping hydrated on warm and hot days (and cold days too!). If you're going to be exercising heavily, a sports drink can help to replace electrolytes.
Drink in proportion to how much you perspire, but remember that too much too quickly can harm you.
Be aware that too much sugar, as can be found in soda, can undermine the benefits of the liquid.
